Larceny / Shoplifting

Shoplifting entails the taking possession of, carrying away, transferring or causing to be carried away or transferred any merchandise offered for sale with the intent to deprive the merchant of possession. Intentionally concealing any merchandise with intent to deprive the merchant of the goods as well as tampering with the label or price tag with intent to deprive the merchant of the goods falls within the definition of the crime. A store clerk can be convicted of the crime shoplifting by intentionally recording a value for the merchandise which is less than the actual retail value with the intent to deprive the merchant of the full retail value.
